"I enjoy being a psychotherapist because it provides me the opportunity to help people resolve the issues that are causing them distress. I work with adults, children, and families, and understand that each person is a unique individual with his or her unique life circumstances, history, and social and cultural context. A goal of our work together will be to help you identify and understand the conflicts that may be causing you difficulty, and to help you overcome them. Or perhaps negative thinking patterns cause you to experience sadness, loneliness, hopelessness, fear, or other unwanted emotions."

"Sometimes the best medicine is sitting with someone who takes you seriously, and can offer you the opportunity to look at yourself through a compassionate lens. Anxiety, depression, and issues around a negative self-image can feel really overwhelming and mystifying. Your family history can provide a foundation to understanding where you come from, and the work we do will help you move towards the gifts that are inherently yours to share with the world, in whatever way you choose to do that.

"Therapy is a place for inquiry and finding meaning. Whether you are hoping to better understand your relationship patterns, process past and/or ongoing trauma, explore shifts in your identity, make a difficult decision or choose your next step(s), I bring a curious and warm presence to your exploration. The intersection of your various identities are fundamental to your connections to self and others, thus, I consider power and privilege and the social location(s) of each individual as I work to understand your path towards healing.

"I enjoy working with clients who want more than traditional "talk" therapy. I understand you might feel like just talking about your life cannot change your experience of it. You may be asking how can therapy make a difference? My approach is informed by the practice of mindfulness - the non-judgmental observation of the present moment. Research has shown mindfulness to be a highly effective treatment for depression, anxiety, and addiction. How is working in mindfulness different? In mindfulness we learn how to shift our emotional state from one of suffering to more empowered states of aliveness."

"In considering a new form of support, a part of you is online that is ready for something different. Perhaps you’re tired of feeling life is passing you by without your full involvement. Or you’ve invested so much in the thoughts and feelings of those around you that you’re no longer sure of your own direction and desires. Maybe you’re at a point of no longer wanting to be alone with overwhelming thoughts and feelings. Whatever brings you here, I respect and nurture this courage to open yourself to new possibilities, and seek to provide you with the support it takes to step away from a script that is familiar but no longer working."

Clients I have worked with said that the work we did together alleviated stressful emotions and gave them an increased sense of empowerment in their ability to manage the outcomes of their lives.
